Assault class?

Anyone found any use for assault class? If so how best to use them, seem to come across ineffective to me so far and normally end up going in with a hunter scout and warrior at lev 13 each. With That said I've not found any use for bruisers either but did see a couple videos and they seem to be needed for high level walkers. So I thought I'd ask for views or advice on their usage.

    I don't really use my assault, he is the one that came from Ep 9. He's lvl 11/15 and the gear he has is average. Perhaps if I lvl'd him up and had better gear, I'd be able to utilize him more. I just don't want to waste the XP on him.

    But I have heard of others who rock the un-dead world with their assault esp. the charge ability being able to stun so many.

    As for the bruiser, the sweet thing is the charge ability only takes to kills to get. Make sure it is charged up when a new wave is about to come in. I am still learning to use them effectively at the higher lvls, but one of my guild mates swears by them.

    in "reverse escape" mission, assault is somewhat effective. it always happen to me that when only 1 more turn needed to unlock the gate, a horde of zombies are coming at all sides. with high level zombies, none of my survivors can kill them with one shot. but with assault's charge ability, it gives me 1 more turn i needed to escape unscathed.

    I have an assault in my top squad. I don't use melee much so I lean on overwatch. This guy keeps the tanks away.

    Just like @aysatyo, I'm using a rare lvl 13/15 assault in reverse escape.
    He is amazing with gold gear. Infact I'm using him a lot in the prison challenge.

    with interrupt ability, its good to put it on overwatch. But more that interrupt, i want a "wider range" trait on assault. But still, that's a great legendary assault weapon.

    I hear that. Once I find that weapon I have another epic assault waiting in the wings.

    @TUCO epic with fully upgraded high lvl legendary gear. Looks good. I'd say yours does a quite bit more damage than. Nice!
    @warbird I see yours is an epeic as well and not rare as you mentioned. I'd take him on my squad.

    Ah of course @SlayerSect ! Glad he is epic lol!
    He can 1 shot up to lvl 11 zombies.

    @TUCO has way better gear equipped though ;-)

    Was tired of waiting so I did one 15 pull and have a new character to train.

    Drool worthy! @zoson @TUCO
    I've got 30+ radios saved up atm. Was hoping that NG would do a New Years special?
    Some of my other games did. But no such luck here lol

    Nice @zoson

    I will have to start grinding for assault gear. Would be nice to see what 3 of them can do.

    Assault with turn on a charge ability then make it them on overwatch mode, will make a stun? I've do it many times..ok now, it's that bug or one of a traits?
  • zosonzoson Member Posts: 2,216
    No, like all other charge abilities, it only works on your own turn.
  • drinkydrinky Member Posts: 414
    If you have the trait on the gun to interrupt enemy attacks on over watch does it do this using its cone I.e will it stop multiple walkers while in over watch or just 1

    Assaults do not get their cone on overwatch unfortunately. It only hits one target.
    Weird considering that both hunters and warriors get their custom attack patterns. I'm hoping it's a bug.
  • drinkydrinky Member Posts: 414
    Doh shame, you'd think it make sense to fix it as could make unfortunately their weak damage.

    They still do multiple damage on overwatch. Its just that the zombies must be within its target cone before those zombies moves. Otherwise, only the first one to come close will get hit.. i've done that in reverse escape. I put the assault in overwatch when many zombies are only one step away from him..

    @TUCO that picture of Eugene suited up just looks wrong on many levels...lmao...he would be my sacrifice every time when fleeing :)

    Anyone noticed how creepy some of the survivors look? Your Susanne is horrible looking and I have a guy that creeps me out every time I look at my survivor profiles. Even got rid of him, killed (I wish) then pulled him again on a survivor run. :)

    Has anyone tried assault with the interrupt trait? Would they interrupt everyone in their area? THAT would really be something!

    yes, it interrupts them all as long as those walkers are inside the assault's cone before they move.

    @aysatyo my assault guy only hits 1 zombie on overwatch and not multiple.
